“My name is Johanna Faustus. I was born almost four hundred years ago.
I gave my soul to achieve the impossible.
I watched this city grow sick and I swore to heal it.
I might be damned, but I would save the world to spite the Devil.”

From award-winning playwright Chris Bush, Caroline Byrne directs this radical new work reimagining the Faust myth to explore what we must sacrifice to achieve greatness, and the legacy that we leave behind.
